iPad Air 1 And iPad Air 2 Bluetooth 3.0 Keyboard case -  SOTKE002400 - Front And BAck Views
The iPad Air 2 Bluetooth Keyboard Case from Brando.com is a convenient way to protect your iPad and always have with you a keyboard to help you better play, write emails or simply transform your tablet into a laptop and accomplish your daily stuff.

The Bluetooth keyboard case is designed for iPad Air 2, but it’s works very well with the first generation of iPad as well and can be used as external keyboard even with Android or Windows devices (anything that supports Bluetooth connectivity).
Actually, in this video review, I am using an iPad Air 1 and, as you see, it’s a perfect fit. The case comes with a full qwerty keyboard and a bunch of dedicated keys to control the most used iPad functions such as volume, settings, screen brightness music playlist controls and copy/paste options. The case connects to your iPad via Bluetooth 3.0 (there are no wires to connect), sports a 350mAh internal rechargeable battery that allows up to 140 hours of uninterrupted usage on a 5 hours full charge, incorporates a desk stand and is available in three colors – Silver, Gold and Gray.

I used the iPad Keyboard Case for about 1.5 weeks and, even though I am not a big fan of using external keyboards and mice on tablets, I must admit it turned out useful more times than I was expecting! Being able to type a long email on my tablet was a actually cool …

The iPad Air Bluetooth Keyboard Case is available for $39 US. Check it out for more info …

43 Cool Umbrellas To Brighten Your Rainy Days & Where To Buy Them

Most people I know hate rainy days! Personally, while I sometimes enjoy a walk in the rain, I can’t say I’m going crazy after them either!
Traffic sucks, people are stressed and angrier than on regular, sunny days and, overall, things tend to go rough on rainy days! And there’s another strange thing going on: following the same pattern as Murphy’s Law that says “Washing your car usually seems to bring rain“, umbrellas seem to vanish, they go broke or lost or they get forgotten at home every time rain is pouring outside!
So, as the rainy season just started, I went out after a cool umbrella to brighten my rainy days. Bellow are the coolest umbrellas I found around. There are a handful of other cool models I found but they were not available for purchase! My favorite is number 18, I can stick it in my backpack and forget about it … until it rains next time! What’s you favorite one?
You are not the only one who hates rain! Share this post, so your friends can also grab a cool umbrella and brighten their rainy days too!

iPhone 6 Plus Power Jacket Protective Case
With the iPhone 6 Plus is already on the market since a couple of weeks ago, it’s time we start looking for some cool accessories to help you protect and make your bellowed iPhone even better! So, for first, we’ll do what every sane geek would do – get some basic protection as well as find a way to improve the iPhone battery life and make sure you finish the day on one power charge!

And our first contender is … the iPhone 6 Plus Power Jacket! Designed to offer basic protection against bumps and scratches, the Power Jacket also includes a 4,200mAh extended battery which will add your iPhone enough power juice to get you through a busy day. If you’re not sure what 4,200mAh means – let me simply tell you that the iPhone 6 Plus battery has 2,915mAh, so the Power Jacket will extend it’s power life with an extra 144% over the original capacity.

While all this extra power juice is great, the Power Jacket comes with a bit of extra bulk and ads 117 grams to the iPhone 6 Plus (the original iPhone weight is 172 grams) and about 17mm in thickness. Not much to worry if you think about all the extra power it brings. The Power Jacket for iPhone 6 Plus comes in two colors (white or black and) and is also available in a 8,200mAh format.

ProGear - The Multipurpose Bike Station
More and more people are using bikes for individual transportation, fitness and pleasure on daily bases. While there’s a plethora of gadgets to super-charge your bike, most solutions come in individual packages and tend to over-crowd your handle bar.

The ProGear Bike Station was designed around the most common biker needs – front light, smartphone charging, FM Radio, MP3 and packs all this solutions into a light package attachable to your handle bar.
The bike station is water and dust proof, features a 7,200mAh USB charger (yeap, that’s right – now you can charge your smartphone while riding your bike, use your GPS on a Quad Lock Bike Mount or work your fitness with a Wahoo Pack without fearing you’ll empty your battery), a MP3 player with microSD card slot, headphones 3.5mm jack, 3 watts loudspeaker with Enhanced Bass Sound, FM Radio and a LED bike light.

While there are some additional features I would have like seeing (think about a bike horn, a time watch or a chronometer, etc …), the ProGear has a decent set of features for the $59 price. Hopefully, improved versions with come complex feature sets will hit the market soon…
